Cup: Flash Hard v Martians

Friday 13 May 2011, Victoria Park
Flash Hard won by 5 wickets

Flash Hard lost the toss and were put into field

Martians: 149 for 3 in 16 overs
Nilish 38
John 36

Flash Hard: 151 for 2 in 16 overs
J.Kennedy 47*
D.Romain 46*

After winning the toss Martians elected to bat in Flash Hard's inaugural match. A good opening partnership of 62 from Dom and John was eventually broken when Dom fell LBW to Yates for 17. John was run out soon after following an excellent direct hit from a swooping Freed at mid wicket.

After some tight bowling from Romain and Yates in the middle overs another good partnership from Nilish and Nags took shape and a late flurry of boundaries took the Martians to a challenging total 149 at the end of the 16th over.

With the required run rate at just under 10 an over Flash Hard made a good start with Kennedy and Yates putting on 45 before Yates was stumped off the bowling of Nags for 23. Houcke came in to play a useful innings of 18 with some much needed boundaries whilst Kennedy dug in at the other end. Houcke was then bowled by a good ball from Dilish to bring Romain to the crease. Having bowled four tight overs and taken a wicket, Romain impressed with the bat as well.

With an exhausted Kennedy having run all but two boundaries on his way to an eventual 47 not out it was Romain's boundary hitting that kept the run rate within touching distance in the closing overs. With 15 required off the last two overs, Romain's unbeaten innings of 46 finished with a four on the 3rd last ball to win the match.
